Wilson to DL; Conger called up
The Angels have placed catcher Bobby Wilson on the 7-day disabled list, due to a concussion he suffered on a foul tip during Monday night’s game.
Taking his place on the roster will be the switch-hitting Hank Conger, who returned to action at Triple-A Salt Lake last week after missing more than a month with a right elbow injury.
Wilson had been serving as the primary catcher in place of Chris Iannetta, who’s still recovering from right wrist surgery but has been long-tossing and could be a couple weeks away from returning.
John Hester, signed to a Minor League deal when Conger went on the shelf in late April, has been used as a backup.
